Hi all,

During a small BBQ a few weeks back Mary O’Loughlin and I decided it would be a nice idea to organise an optimist reunion. We are organising a get together in Malahide Yacht Club (James Terrace) on Saturday October 12.

Food and of course the bar will be open for a few drinks and general get together.

The idea is to get as many people from the 70s, 80s, 90s back together and catch up. This is aimed at anyone and everyone who sailed optimists during this time.

As we were all quite young then and parents were a very important part of our Optimist sailing we are aware that many of our parents made great friends during our time sailing and we inviting any parents along too.

There will be a small cost of €20 to cover the food.

Also if there is interest the Yacht Club has offered us the use of the club Topaz’s in order to run a small regatta on the Saturday, just for FUN. If anyone is interested in doing this can you please let me know.

The Yacht Club has undergone a major overhaul in the last couple of years and there is now a brand new Clubhouse in the Broadmeadows and well worth a visit for those who froze or got electrocuted in the old place.

For those who sailed during the 90s Harte will be there on the night and is looking forward to seeing everyone.

Please book by emailing me at: ciarapeelo@gmail.com

Please pass this on to anyone you know who sailed optimists during this time.

We are relying on people passing on the information in order to make it a success.

Hope to see you all there.
